president obama to do right now? >> oh, gosh. that's a tough question, because susan rice is being unfairly pillared for what happened here. at the same time the state department is primarily responsible for the breakdown in security. the failure to provide adequate security to our ambassador in libya. that investigation is clearly something that mrs. clinton is going to have to reckon with. in a choice right now where the middle east is aflame and where iran ultimately becomes the greatest diplomatic and potential military challenge that the united states faces, it's clear that the president's going to need sure footing with a secretary of state who has the stature and respect around the world and by the way with congress. i really feel na perhaps senator kerry in the end is going to probably be that person who has that -- carrying that stature and knowledge. yet, at the same time be perfectly frank. what is happening to susan rice is unfair and inappropriate. she doesn't deserve to have a reputation tarnished. she was the last person in the world who was responsible for what took place in
